What toy would you like to invent?
We will be learning all about toys this half term. The children have been busy finding out about old and new toys. We have borrowed a special toy box from the museum to look at a variety of toys. In English we will be looking at Traction Man, Toy story, Kippers Toybox and non-fiction books. In history we will be looking at how toys have changed. In Science we will be experimenting with toys that float and sink. In D.T and Art we are going to be making a moving toy.
( Thank you for all the boxes that you have been sending in!)
Who is Julia Donaldson?
During the second half of the spring term we will look at the author Julia Donaldson and explore lots of books she has written. We would be really grateful of any Julia Donaldson books you can bring in for us to have a look at. Some of the books we will be covering are:
The Smartest Giant in Town
Room on the Broom
The Gruffalo (one of our favourites!)
We will be making our own Gruffalo Crumble and learning about health and safety when cooking.
We also have our story telling day to look forward to in March! Thank you to those of you who have already bought in a donation.
